James W. Saxton

CEO
Saxton & Stump Lawyers and Consultants

CEO of Saxton & Stump since 2015, he has been involved in law firm leadership for more than 20 years. His role is to develop the strategic vision, ensuring that the firm of lawyers and consultants reaches its long- and short-term goals. Saxton works closely with managers and department chairs to execute that strategy while maintaining the firm’s business discipline, and to instill a culture of creativity and innovation.

“Technology has and will continue to play a major role in transforming our industry,” Saxton said about how the field is changing. “It is daunting to think about what has happened in just the past two decades and then think about what is in front of us. Technology creates endless opportunities for us to help clients creatively, efficiently and effectively in ways never imagined.”

As a CEO, “I do a great deal of managing and leading, which is both challenging and rewarding,” he explained. “Making decisions that impact the larger group adds a different type of responsibility than just focusing on one’s practice.” Thinking through issues, while balancing a diverse set of views, can be a challenge. “However, watching an organization grow, which has fortunately been our circumstance, is equally rewarding.”
